Mark your calendars now! Our annual TEAM fundraiser is coming soon! The Swim-A-Thon is scheduled for TUESDAY, MAY 15TH from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. This is an ALL TEAM EVENT! Each swimmer will work with Coach Gina or Coach Lori to determine their lap goal for the two-hour swim. Most kids exceed their goal!!!!
What is the Swim-A-Thon? This is our annual fundraiser, sponsored by the USA Swimming Foundation. Swimmers raise money by receiving pledges from family, friends, neighbors, and local business, either an amount per lap or a flat donation. Swimmers then swim as many laps as they can on Swim-A-Thon day. Pledges are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and can be collected before or after the event.
What is the money used for? This money is used for purchasing equipment, pool rental fees, training and certifications for Coaches, Officials and Board Members, and much more! Other than the Artman Invitational Swim Meet, this is our only fundraiser. A small percentage also goes to the USA Swimming Foundation to support philanthropic programs sponsored by USA Swimming.
Each swimmer has a goal of raising at least $200. Our team goal for 2018 is: $8000!! We will have prizes for the top overall fundraisers. After the event, we will have a team POTLUCK, so please bring a dish to share. Parents – we ask for your help to make this event a success! We need parents to count laps during the event and to help your swimmer with soliciting donations, plus bring a yummy dish to share with all the hungry swimmers at the conclusion of the event.
